Hampidjan Offshore has launched completely recyclable heavy lift slings for the offshore and onshore construction market.

Hampidjan Offshore said that it has been working with suppliers for the past two years to select materials that have “after-use value to society” without compromising on performance or certification requirements.

Teijin Aramid supplied its Twaron material for the slings; the high-performance fibre has been used within the offshore industry for two decades and can now be recycled and reprocessed for use within the automotive industry. The polyester jacket material is a recycled product and sourced directly from reprocessed material suppliers.

Hampidjan Offshore encourages all customers to return TERRA slings at the end of their use. Partnering with Teijin in its recycling programme allows substantial rebate payments to be offered based on the weight of each sling returned. Hampidjan Offshore will accept the used product, which will then be broken down into constituent parts for full reprocessing and reuse.
